'Party Girl' goes on-line

June 02, 1995|By The Hollywood Reporter

In what may be a portent of the digital future, the comedy film "Party Girl" will be transmitted live on the worldwide Internet concurrently with its showing tomorrow at the Seattle International Film Festival.

The film is scheduled for release in theaters on June 9.

Apple Computer, Silicon Graphics and L.A.-based Internet consulting firm Serve.Net will coordinate the enabling technology. Because of the advanced level of technology nee-ded to receive the compressed images in real time, only a select group of companies and institutions with high-speed Internet links will be able to see the film, and even then it will be in black-and-white.
